13 x 60 minutes (2014, CBC Television)

Created by writer Tracey Forces and Toronto Emergency Task Force officer Calum de Hartog, Cracked blends police procedural with medical drama and is inspired by the real-life experiences of police officers and mental-health professionals. The hour-long series is a bold depiction of the psychological side of policing and the emotional impact on front-line workers. It is billed as “a fascinating yet affectionate exploration of all dimensions of human behavior.” The series reflects the reality that an overwhelming percentage of police calls involve people with mental illnesses or psychiatric disorders – people who cross all ages, incomes and ethnicities. The Psych Crimes Unit struggles to achieve balance between protecting the public from harm and protecting the dignity of all citizens – often at the expense of their own mental health. Cracked is produced by White Pine Pictures in association with the CBC. It was announced in March of 2014 that due to budget constraints, CBC would not commit to a third season.
